National Foster Family Week is October 15-21, a time to recognize our foster and kin families who make a positive difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in our community. Last year, 123 foster families and 192 kinship families provided caring, loving homes for children in need.
Everyone needs a family and our foster and kin families have a lasting impact. They help children and youth through some of the challenges that come with traumatic separation, loss and other difficulties. As role models, they contribute to helping these children and youth develop a positive outlook and create a sense of belonging. Peel CAS is truly grateful for all that our families do to ensure that children are loved, valued and supported.
